    gromex by the foot
    cheaper than your wildest dreams

    if your looking at a 1 time project, your better off buying it from ebay for a dollar

    but for us who are always poking our fingers into sharp holes and putting wire through sheet metal
    heres the by the foot recipe
    1 length of air hose for a fish tank, purchasable at walmart or any half decent store
    http://www.inventgeek.com/2011-Proje.../Images/06.jpg
    and a way to split it down the middle

    once the air line is split it will fit over the sheet metal and your living a protected life
    keep it in place with pvc glue, gorilla glue, goop, od rubber cement
    any of these can be colored with paint colors (purchasable at any lowes or home depot) *to much color will un-stikyfy the gluieness *
    and applied with q-tips, or plumbers brushes

    w a r n i n g : do not try to use a blade of ANY type held in your hands, never cut tward your self

    -----and if you dont know how to cut safely --- T H E N . D O N T . D O . I T !!!!!!! -----
